The AirAsia name change policy allows a change of name only if it relates to correcting a name.
For example, you are allowed to:

  • Correct a spelling mistake in your name
  • Add or remove English names for Chinese passengers
  • Correct your gender in case of a mistake 
  • Swap the first and last names 

AirAsia does not allow a complete change of name, especially if it results in a change of the passenger.
